Pos batt terminal > fuse > busbar > all positive connections

Fit more than a couple of big lugs on a battery and you're out of space. The busbars allow for a much cleaner install, and if you ever need to disconnect something you don't have to unstack the batt. terminal...
I've opted for the single posts at conception. The buss-bar was a consideration, but I couldn't justify the additional cost for reason of convenience. After nearly 13 years, I've only had to remove a cable once to replace an invertor, and a second time to add a redundant charger.

I assume since its red I connect it to the positive?

If that wasn't a joke I have two extinguishers in the car.

Can you recommend a battery monitor and shunts?

Victron BMV is a good option. Xantrex makes one that works alright as well.
